About the Author

Jason M. Hough was born in Illinois but grew up on the mean streets of suburban San Diego, California. In 1978, at age six, his parents took him to see Star Wars, and so began a lifelong love of sci-fi and all things geek. He later worked for a decade in the videogame industry as both a 3D artist and a game designer. Today he lives in Seattle with his wife and two young sons. When not writing, Hough enjoys building LEGO spaceships with his boys and other similarly grown-up pursuits.

The Dire Earth Cycle series should come with a warning: DO NOT DISTURB THE READER! As with The Darwin Elevator, before reading book 2, The Exodus Towers, it is important to do the following: Get plenty of rest, eat well, turn off the phone, computer, pull the blinds, hang out the DO NOT DISTURB sign, because, once again, Jason Hough is going to hold you spellbound to each and every word! The Builders are back, just as mysterious, just as deadly and what’s left of the human race is punching the time clock of survival, time is running short and we’re off to Brazil, where a new elevator has appeared with mobile towers that radiate a ‘safe field’ from the virus that has been unleashed on the world. If that isn’t enough to deal with, human factions actually think this is THEIR time to take over and control man’s survival, cherry-picking their “team.” Politics and power, now? Seriously? The sub-humans are evolving, good people are risking their lives to solve the riddle of the Builders, but the immunes are spread thin, very thin. Longtime trusted team members are scattered, no one knows who is alive, everyone shares a piece of guilt. Is this a game to the builders? Is this some kind of inter-galactic scavenger hunt? Everyone uses the phrase “edge of my seat” or “white knuckled” or “gut-clenching” – well guess what, The Exodus Towers is all that and more! I had to stop gritting my teeth, shake out my arms, and remember to breathe! Jason Hough has matched the tension, desperation and action of book 1! His characters are not just on the page, they are real, they stood right I front of me, beside me and I was, one again, running for my life! I wasn’t just sucked in, I almost forgot this wasn’t real! The Exodus Towers is NOT just filler between The Darwin Elevator and The Plague Forge, it is as necessary to the trilogy as water is to a shark, and the events are just as deadly. Jason Hough has created a cult-worthy phenomenon for Sci-fi lovers everywhere with his vivid descriptions, over-the-top heroes, grit and a plot that just does not slow down! An ARC edition of The Exodus Towerswas provided by NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group – Del Rey Spectra in exchange for my honest review and I honestly loved it!

A new tower has appeared in Brazil...  A race to discover the motives behind the “Builder's” contact is on... The sub-humans are evolving into an even more deadly opponent... Human factions and political mechanizations might just wipe out our very existence... and if the mechanizations don't wipe us out the fanaticism and cults might just do the job... Jason M. Hough writes a mind blowing, utterly riveting second story in the Dire Earth Cycle. The Exodus Tower is a nail biting, page turner that had me glued to every page. Sucked into this post apocalyptic world by Hough's gift of putting his brilliant imagination into words, you feel like you've joined the fight for survival. One of the best, enthralling, gritty, realistic, science fiction, fantasy works I've ever read.  This ARC copy of The Exodus Towers was given to me by Random House Publishing Group - Del Rey Spectra in exchange for a honest review.
